Reduced depression among German students
A group of 99 German students was divided into 3 groups, a TM group, an Autogenic Training (AT) group and a control group. They were tested before instruction in the TM technique, and afterwards. After 7 to 8 weeks the TM group showed a significant reduction in depression (p<.01), as opposed to the AT group, that showed no change, and the control group, that showed a slight increase. After 16 weeks the cumulated reduction in depression was even greater (p<.01) compared to both control groups.
Improvements occurred also for anxiety (p<.0005), emotional instability (p<.05) and fear (p<.005).Ref.Scientific Research on TM, Collected Papers vol 3, 273, pp. 2049-2053
